Title I
View East Muskingum Local Schools
Title I is a supplemental program which originated with federal legislation in the Elementary and
Secondary Education Act of 1965. The purpose of Title I is to enable schools to provide
opportunities for selected students to acquire the knowledge and basic skills contained in the
content standards and to meet the challenging state performance standards developed for all
children, particularly in reading.
All students who receive Title I services are selected based on multiple data points at the beginning
of the school year. Services are based on the students with the most need. Students in
Kindergarten through third grade received these intervention services during the 2017-2018 school
year. Fast ForWord, a powerful one-on-one intervention program for second grade students, is
also a vital part of the Title I program. Staff and parents are in consultation concerning students
selected for these programs.
Students work with educators who meet the definition of highly qualified teachers. These
educators provide parents with educational materials during the school year to help students be
successful. This may come through individual and group meetings that are held during the school
year, report cards, conferences, and newsletters. Parents who are unable to attend meetings during
the scheduled times are encouraged to request a different meeting time and these will be
accommodated. Additionally, parents may request information in their native language.
On the fall 2017 3rd Grade English Language Assessment, 49% of East Muskingum students were
proficient on the full measure assessment. 76% of the 3 rd graders were proficient and/or above that
level on the 2018 3 rd Grade English Language Assessment administered in the spring. All student
performance data is available from Title I staff at each building and will be shared at each
building’s annual Title I parent meeting. Information may also be found at www.ohiopirc.org.
Parent involvement and input is vital to the success of the program. The district Parent
Participation Policy can be located on the district website.
